The three-time Super Bowl champion is reunited with former Patriots teammateand current Titans head coach Mike Vrabel.

Gostkowski, 36, went to college at Memphis and recently purchased a home inthe Nashville area. He worked out for the Titans earlier this week.

In March, the Patriots released Gostkowski after 14 seasons. The franchise’sall-time leading scorer (1,775 points), he made 374 of 428 field-goal attempts(franchise-best 87.4 percent) in his career, including 25 of 35 from 50-plusyards. He is a four-time Pro Bowl selection (2008, 2013-15) and was first-teamAll-Pro in 2008 and 2015.

He played only four games last season before landing on injured reserve withan ailing left hip. He made 7 of 8 field-goal attempts and just 11 of 15extra-point attempts.

Gostkowski was originally selected by the Patriots in the fourth round of the2006 NFL Draft as a replacement for Adam Vinatieri, who had left for theIndianapolis Colts.

Tennessee also waived kicker Greg Joseph, who was signed last December andmade all 18 of his extra points in two regular season games and three playoffgames. He also made his only field-goal attempt, a 30-yarder in the firstquarter of the AFC Championship game loss to the Kansas City Chiefs.
